Overview

This unique cookbook combines the doctrine of Feng Shui with the 5element nutrition theory. Both ideas, originally from China, offer a holistic cooking and eating approach for better health and happiness. The first third of the book offers an overview of the Feng Shui theory of enhancing the free flow of energy or "chi" in the kitchen. The right arrangement of furniture, harmonious colors, materials, and shapes, as well as good lighting and ventilation are allimportant elements that are covered. Not only do meals then taste better, they are also easier to digest and are healthier. The remaining chapters feature recipes divided according to the 5 elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. An emphasis is placed on balancing the yin and yang of food, the importance of the seasons, strengthening the body's organs and systems, and more.
